A gallery chronicling 11 exotic faith communities in the state gets help at its opening from a few of its subjects.

It sounded like the setup to a joke: A rabbi, a Muslim and a Gospel preacher walk into a museum.

In reality, it was opening night for an unusual photo exhibit — and the guest list featured a veritable United Nations of spirituality.

Gay Hindus, Jewish 12-steppers and Women of Wisdom were among those who dropped by the Fullerton Museum Center on Saturday to see "Golden States of Grace," a traveling photo gallery chronicling 11 exotic California faith communities.
